Advanced MSK MRI Acquisition & Post-Processing: Rapid Imaging
Sunrise Session

ORGANIZERS: Jung-Ah Choi, Miika Nieminen, Edwin Oei, Jan Fritz

Tuesday, 14 May 2019
Room 516C-E  07:00 - 08:00 Moderators:  Noam Ben-Eliezer, Stefan Zbyn

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Session Number: S-TU-06

These four sessions will cover advanced MR imaging and MRI post-processing of the musculoskeletal system including machine learning, rapid imaging, fat suppression and quantification, and MR fingerprinting. Both a research and clinical perspective on each topic will be presented.

Target Audience
Scientists and clinicians interested in applying new MR or post-processing techniques for research or clinical applications.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe the advanced imaging or post-processing technique discussed in the session;
- Explain how the technique discussed has been applied in the musculoskeletal research; and
- Describe how the technique might be used clinically.



  Rapid Imaging: The Fast & the Furious: Research Perspective
Li Feng
This talk will briefly describe different fast imaging techniques that can be applied to MSK imaging, including parallel imaging, compressed sensing imaging, simultaneous multislice imaging, and more recently, MR fingerprinting and deep learning-based approaches. The advantages and limitations of different methods will be discussed, and their applications in various MSK MR studies will be reviewed.

  Rapid Imaging: The Fast & the Furious - Clinical Perspective
Jan Fritz
Two-dimensional and three-dimensional MRI has evolved into the leading modality for the non-invasive assessment of joints, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. Multiple techniques for acceleration of 2D and 3D MRI have been developed, validated, and in part already clinically implemented. Current acceleration techniques include parallel imaging, simultaneous multislice, compressed sensing, high-density multi-channel coil, and synthetic techniques, providing powerful tools for efficient acquisition of comprehensive MRI exams with superb image quality in 5 to 10 minute to meet today’s value challenges.
